Went out for what was predicted to be an amazing sunrise, only to find the clouds had moved in and completely covered the mountains. Stuck it out anyway and got a surprising pop of color just behind the infamous lone tree.

For more of my work check out my website or Instagram. I also just started a YouTube channel!

For the record, Alberta has more than one tree. I can see at least... three in this photo, alone!

I like it. Good thing you stayed

Hmmmm looks like a good place for a pipeline.

This is surreal. Where are the other trees? One last tree standing.

The mountains where they meet Alberta in the Lower Mainland would just be my dream place to live (so long as I had good internet). I'm always in awe of the mountains and I'm fine with 0 to -20 temps so long as I have functioning central heating to retreat to.

I'm so curious where this location is as the Rockies are a ways away from the Lower Mainland - one would say different sides of the province even. (Vancouver and the Lower Mainland are part of the Coastal Mountain Range, arguable one of the most beautiful places around).

oh I guess I should have said the area along the Trans-Canada. Not sure where this particular place is, could be much farther north too for all I know but there are many vistas along the road through Rogers Pass into Golden and around the Banff Area.

The thumbnail hit me with some confusing perspective, I thought it was a giant tree across the lake, the bottom being a reflection.

Something about the way the horizon splits the entire picture, and the tree is the only thing bridging it.

Nice shot!

Used to be a set of twin trees until some kid in a life vest crashed a delorean into the other one back in the 50's
